The Green Man Collection brings together tracks from their recent albums with new versions of three Steeleye classics (including a reworking of ‘Hard Times’ featuring Status Quo’s Francis Rossi) and a cover of Elvis Costello’s ‘Shipbuilding’.
The title track is of special interest to Steeleye fans, a song by Bob Johnson – who was a member of the band throughout the early years and responsible for many of their classic ballads from that era.
Previously lost for 40 years, the song addressed the issue of climate change long before it became such a widespread topic.
The Green Man Collection will be released online and for mail order from Friday 1st December 2023
